It looks like House of Cards will be back for season 2 on Netflix. That means Congressman Francis Underwood and the rest of the greasy gang will be back for another slew of episodes.

A couple weeks ago House of Cards actress Constance Zimmer tweeted, "We Start Shooting Season 2 of House of Cards in Two Weeks," to Gareth Keenan's [Mackenzie Cook from the U.K. The Office] twitter account.

Netlfix has confirmed House of Cards season 2 will be 13 episodes long and will be released all at once like season 1.

Fans of season 1 House of Cards, may be a little disappointed David Fincher is only directing the first two episodes. Luckily the remaining 11 episodes are in the capable hands of Joel Schumacher [Batman & Robin], Charles McDougall [The Office], Alan Coulter [Boardwalk Empire], Carl Franklin [Out of Time] and James Foley [Glengarry Glen Ross].

Kevin Spacey, who plays the slimy Francis Underwood, is also working behind the camera as an executive producer.

Netflix's Watch Instant feature is proving to be quite a popular method. In today's day and age most people don't have schedules that allow them to watch shows live. So to be able to watch them on their own time could be a glimpse of the future.

"In offering the entire season at once, Netflix is giving viewers complete control over how and when they watch the show," according to Netflix's Chief Content Officer.
